Belize is an excellent choice for those looking for an intimate wedding set on a beautiful natural backdrop. Over the past couple years, there has been a general trend to move wedding venues out of ballrooms and into more exotic destinations. The Caribbean and Mexico take on so many weddings each year that they almost feel pre-fabricated, where the only thing that changes is the bride and groom. As a result, couples have been looking for more intimate and personal locations like Belize. In addition, couples already married can consider renewing their vows here as well. A wedding in Belize is 100% legal and is valid worldwide. You must be in Belize 3 days prior to the wedding and have a valid passport as well as proof of marital status if widowed or divorced. Aside from that, a local wedding planner can help you arrange all the rest of the details to help you plan that dream ceremony.
The locations and options for a wedding in Belize are vast. The most popular weddings are bare foot weddings on a sandy beach at sunset. You can walk down an aisle lined with shells and flowers and say your vows under an archway made from palm fronds. There are many resorts that offer the perfect beach backdrop for your ceremony as well as offering all the amenities and services for you and your guests. If you want something a little more conservative, while still retaining an exotic charm, some resorts have small chapels nestled right along the beach. If you want a more exotic beach wedding you can consider tying the knot on a deserted island with white sandy beaches. Jungle wedding are also popular such ceremonies beside a waterfall. You will be surrounded by nature and the soothing sound of water. For a truly magnificent jungle setting you can hold hands at the base of a Maya temple. If you and your fiancé are divers, you can even have an underwater wedding! Believe it or not, it’s been done here before.
